Dorky Tuesday

So, it's Dorky Tuesday already?

This was my cousin and me in 1965 when I was 16 years old. Notice the Vaseline soaked hair, all slicked back into a DA, pants as tight and as short as I could find and the pointy toe shoes.

She has her arm around me to keep me from running away, because I hated having my picture taken.

This one is of me at my new assignment, the 6th Armored Cavalry Regiment at Ft Meade MD, after about three months in the hospital after being wounded in Vietnam. I was trying to look cool so I leaned on the bunk. When I saw the picture, I could tell that pose didn't make me look cool.

Aww, I don't think you look dorky!!! Ok, maybe a LITTLE bit, but I think it's because of the hair---it's looking a bit Eddie Munster to me

Yep. You're a dork. Not quite as dorky in the second one, but all sorts of other issues arise in that one!

No one in the army (god I hope you were)can be a dork!

Jenny: More like Tony Curtis if you ask me.

Lelly: LOL, yeah, cool.

Os: I was thinking the same thing.

Thanks Gus & Julie. Check out my Flickr ones for my life in pictures.

Aughra: Something to hold on to, to keep me where she wants me. ;)
